1st of all: this is a good post. You told us the year model and trim of your car, you searched the forum first,AND you posted a picture so everyone knows what you are talking about.
I researched this in an online manual (from our DIY section) but I was unsuccessful. They tell you about how to remove most of the interior except for this piece.
I am at work now, but I have a Haynes at home. However, I am not too sure I remember seeing anything in the Haynes about this. I will check it anyway.
Hopefully another member who has removed this piece before can tell you how it's done.
In the meantime, how about you introduce yourself in our "new member" area? Oh yeah...[sm=welcomesign.gif]. I hope we can answer your question soon.

Great! I'm glad to hear you fixed your problem. Thanks for posting the solution as well. I was unable to find any information in my Haynes manual at home on this subject either. (I need to buy a Helm.) I had a sneaking suspicion there would be some kind of attachment point behind the sungless holder.

Thumbs up Don't waste time trying to use Super Glue

Once I removed the map light/sunglass holder unit, everything made sense on how you fixed it. However, I had some high quality super glues I thought might work and hoped to skip the drilling for the screw. Well, none of the glues worked. Just thought I mention this to help future DIY Honda owners save some time.

I am excited to see that your solution was exactly like mine. My 1998 Honda Accord Sunglasses/Map light console was not working when I clicked on the lights. I knew it wasn't a fuse, because the door and other interior lights worked. So, I removed the console, and found that the backing is what the clickers click against, and they are held in place by 2 plastic hollow posts that are melted down on the back side to hold the backing plate in place. In my car, those 2 posts had broken off, just like yours. I noticed that the hollow posts allowed a #6 screw to be inserted, so I went and bought 2 #6 machine screws x 3/4 inches. I already had the nuts to fit. I drilled holes, just like you did, and secured that backing in place. I agree - better than the original design. I would recommend inch long screws if I was to do it over, because I had just enough length on the 3/4 inch screws to hold the nut flush with the tip of the screw. Anyway, I hope this helps someone in the future.
